Hands Across the Bridge Putting “People First”

Today (3/3/11) there is another vigil with activists holding hands from Duluth and Superior across the Bong Bridge (the pathway). The theme would be “people first.”

Wisconsin’s Governor Walker announced his budget and President Obama’s budget just came out, too, so Thursday would be a good day to react to both budgets. We’re keeping the focus on budget cuts and how they affect people across the region. No lectures or anything else. The idea is to have something for media and also to keep citizens engaged.

We’ll be meeting at 5 P.M. and starting to walk toward the center of the bridge to meet fellow activists from the Duluth side.

Bring family and friends and tell everyone you know.

§ Parking is available at Best Western Bay Walk Inn and the Shack at the foot of the Bong Bridge in Superior (not sure about parking on the Duluth side).
